About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

ABC Wednesday - X is for Xs aka Kisses

Here it is 8:00 pm Wednesday evening, and I suddenly realised that I'd forgotten about ABC Wednesday! Yikes! What to do? What to do? Then Jane said, "You can do kisses - from Noah!" Aha! Perfect! My daughter just left with him and Eden after coming to meet Jane and Don and staying for dinner. So, without further ado, X is for Kisses.


Kisses from #1 grandson Noah.


Who could resist kissing this sweet baby!


Even Jane got in on the action tonight when Noah "took" to her.

Have a great week everyone and I'll have more time to visit everyone next week for the letter Y. To see more participants, please visit Mrs. Nesbitt here.

Leslie I have decided what I like the best about you. You really enjoy life and you go out and live it. You are full of the spirit of love. I like your Spirit Leslie it shines through your eyes.

I am not just saying that because it is "Say something nice to a Canadian day" here in the U.S. I really mean it.

A lovely X. We just spent several days camping with our grands, and quite a few Xs and Os were part of the proceedings.

Leslie, these pictures warmed the old cockles of my heart. Lucky you all are to be in kissing distance.
I am shocked that XOX didn't even occur to me. Guess it is a sign that it is time to get on a plane and visit my little grandsons.
Thanks for the reminder.
And thanks for your kind comment. Appreciate y'all's sentiments.

Very fine! Xs and Os from those little ones are just wonderful!

"Louis" thanks you for stopping by - he doesn't care if you were a day late - so was he in stopping by here!

"Louis" is buried deeper than his cowbell in a work project for the next few weeks. He'll be stopping by but likely won't sign the 'guest registry'....

I have forgotten about X Files being filmed over there, but now you said so, it came back to my mind! Have you ever had the chance of seeing the making of any time?
Thanks back for your stopping by too! :)
